For Pete's sake, RSVP if you're coming.  It helps to know how many of you knuckleheads are going to be bringing down the property values. Registration is online and super easy. 

What's it cost?
There are no entry fees.

Is this a race? How do I win?
The PKR is not a race. It's a ride that welcomes all kinds of riders. We create routes that challenge the Peckerheads to level up and push themselves. And then, when it's all over, we hang out together, eat, drink, and tell lies about how fast we went. 

What can I bring? How can I help?
No denying, setting up something this is a lotta work. Here's two great ways you can help. 
1. If you would like to bring a covered dish, we will gladly accept it.  Salads and appetizers are always popular.  Cool or room temp are best.  Booze and / or recovery drinks are always good too. 

2. Donate to cover costs. We have a cash donation jar bucket if you're so inclined.

Arrival, Coffee, and Bathrooms
You can get here any time you want.  We're generally open for business by 7:00 am.  It's better to be early than late.  You know you're going to screw around fiddling with your socks or something. Relax It's Just Coffee provides iced espresso to get up all jacked up and ready to rock. 

Bathrooms are limited. Do your poopy business before you show up. 

536 Chevy Chase Road
Mansfield, OH 44907
Your options, in order of my preference, are:
1.) Ride your bike to my house.  Easy.
2.) Park on the street.
3.) Use the southern end of the lot at the Mansfield Art Center that is right on Marion Ave and Millsboro Road, about a half mile from HQ.

Registration, Maps, Rider Meeting
Registration is online.  You have to register in order to ride.  There is no entry fee. Maps are sometimes available at registration, sometimes not. 

All the maps are available here and online at MapMyRide.com. We added Strava Routes.

Riders meeting at 8:30 am for announcements and information.  My driveway.  Be there.

Departure -- Staggered Start at 9:00 am
Be ready to leave at 9:00 am. Seriously.
We do a staggered start where we self-select into slow and fast groups (your decide what you are). 
The slow group leaves at 9:00 am
The fast group leaves at 9:15 am.

The idea being that we come together on the road for some conversation and chit chat before Bellville.  Remember, we're riding - not racing.  There's plenty of suffering to be had in the second half.

On the Road Support
There is none.  Like, no support. Peckerheads are a wily lot prepared to survive on their wits.  Seriously, make sure you have what you need to change a flat, your cell phone, food, some cash, etc.

Road Markings
Our arrows are green and have a circle on the end of them.  If there is no arrow at an intersection, you should go straight through.

Barring massive weather issues, we're going rain or shine. If massive weather issues do occur, we will post updates on our Facebook page, through this blog, and via email.

Cookout and evening activities
The cookout starts at 11:30 or so and continues through the afternoon.  Please make sure you stay and hang out!  Bring a change of clothes so you can be comfortable.

Seriously ossifer, I was...urp... jus out fer a rhide.
